People wanting to ride the new attraction at a theme park in Staffordshire are being given sick bags to take on with them, in case of emergencies.

It's after a hose had to be installed next to the new ride Air race at Drayton Manor Theme Park to rinse passengers down.

Air Race is a fantastic addition to the park but we felt in light of the effects of the ride, we needed to supply passengers with sick bags. It seemed like the only logical answer to keep our new £1.2 million ride a sick-free zone. It also reduces the work load of our employees and our water consumption by reducing the number of times the ride needs hosing down!”
